Horse

Year of the Horse / Zodiac Sign
China
Japan uma
Horse Vertical Wall Scroll

馬 is the character for horse in Chinese, old Korean, and Japanese.

If you were born in the year of the horse, you . . .


Are outgoing and active.
Don't give up easily.
Are known to have a bad temper.

Fire Horse

China huǒ mǎ
Japan oma hi
Fire Horse Vertical Wall Scroll

火馬 is the title, "Fire Horse."

火馬 is not a common title for calligraphy. You might be looking for 丙午, 43rd year of the sexagenary cycle (year of the Fire Horse, renowned for disasters and the birth of women destined to kill their husbands).

The Spirit of the Dragon Horse

China lóng mǎ jīng shén
The Spirit of the Dragon Horse Vertical Wall Scroll

龍馬精神 is an old proverb that is used to wish someone good health and success combined as a great compliment.

The meaning is "The vigor and spirit of the legendary dragon-horse." These four characters are often accompanied by four more which mean, "...and the power and prestige of the tiger." Here we are just offering the first part which is considered the short version.

By giving a wall scroll like this to someone, you were either wishing or telling them that they have an amazing quality. There is also a suggestion of good health - at least anyone with the vigor of a dragon horse, would seem to also be in good health.


Note: In Japanese, this would be read as the spirit of 坂本龍馬 (Sakamoto_Ryōma), a beloved rebel who help abolish the old Japanese feudal system. This can be confusing, so I am declaring this proverb to be Chinese only.

Green Plum and Bamboo Horse

Innocent Children's Games
China qīng méi zhú mǎ
Green Plum and Bamboo Horse Vertical Wall Scroll

This literally means, "green plums and hobby-horse." Figuratively, it means, "innocent children's games," "childhood sweethearts," or "a couple who grew up as childhood friends."

This phrase may sound a little strange as it's a kind of Chinese proverb or idiom. It makes much more sense in Chinese than English.

The Spirit of the Dragon Horse,
the Power of a Tiger.

China lóng mǎ jīng shén hǔ hǔ shēng wēi
The Spirit of the Dragon Horse, / the Power of a Tiger. Vertical Wall Scroll

This is an old proverb that is used to wish someone great health and success combined as a great compliment.

The meaning is "The vigor and spirit of the legendary dragon-horse, and the power and prestige of the tiger."

By giving a wall scroll like this to someone, you were either wishing or telling them that they have these qualities. There is also a suggestion of good health - at least anyone with the vigor of a dragon horse, would seem to also be in good health.

Eight Black Horses

China hēi bā mǎ
Eight Black Horses Vertical Wall Scroll

黑八馬 means "eight black horses" in Chinese.

黑八馬 is an unusual title for calligraphy, but several people have searched for it, so we added it.
Eight horses is a sign of success in business in Chinese culture.

Knight

China qí shì
Japan ki shi
Knight Vertical Wall Scroll

The first character has the element of "horse" in it, and alone can mean "one who rides."

Together, these characters can be translated as "riding soldier" or "horseman soldier," which of course can also be translated as "knight."


Can also be translated as "cavalier."

All of our calligraphy wall scrolls are handmade.

When the calligrapher finishes creating your artwork, it is taken to my art mounting workshop in Beijing where a wall scroll is made by hand from a combination of silk, rice paper, and wood.
After we create your wall scroll, it takes at least two weeks for air mail delivery from Beijing to you.

Allow a few weeks for delivery. Rush service speeds it up by a week or two for $10!

When you select your calligraphy, you'll be taken to another page where you can choose various custom options.

single-character wall scroll.
We also offer custom wall scrolls in small, medium, and an even-larger jumbo size.

A professional Chinese Calligrapher

Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.

There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.

Trying to learn Chinese calligrapher - a futile effort

Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.

A high-ranked Chinese master calligrapher that I met in Zhongwei

The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.
